Upload? - Please

Would one of you fine gentleman whom have been able to get this to work, mind uploading the modified version? I have tried this following the instructions, and have been unable to get the re-signed .apk to install. I just want to see if it is me doing something wrong, or if it is my phone. BTW I am using d2vzw.
Great job dude.. Works well.. Now most options are in English.. Many thanks.. :thumbup:

Yandex Market now live. Use this link from mobile to download apk:

http://m.store.yandex.com/

After install, yandex shell is available for free, still in Russian, but links for weather and news working properly.

Thank you for this information, but I think that most of the people coming to to this would like to just be able to read the settings options in the Yandex menu. The launcher is really unusable in this state if you do not read Russian. I tried the steps provided above with the text changing, and afterwards it installs but will not load, and just sits at the splash screen. I have tried this with 3.11 & 3.13 versions of this apk.


***HAS ANYONE AT ALL SUCCESSFULLY MADE A VERSION OF THIS WHICH AN ENGLISH SPEAKER COULD NAVIGATE?:confused:***

Would someone speaking russian be kind enough to screenshot the setting page and translate it for us.
Just to have an idea of what's what.

I used the Spbshell3d.txt attached on page 2. What I did was simply opened the APK using winzip... go to assets\skins\skins\texts\ru\ and delete the spbshell3d.txt . Now copy the english txt back into this folder. Remember use Add & Update mode of winzip. Then copy the apk to mobile and install. I did not sign it and it still worked, As the gentleman mentioned. the cities for weather widgets, world clock etc are in Russian, but if you want to add ur city, make sure u are connected to internet and then type name of your city using English keyboard. The City name appears in both Russian (and English in brackets) .

I wil find out how to take snapshot of screen and post it here.

That would be very kind of you. I have been able to find usable English versions of most launchers [+1 to all the LauncherJunkies out there], but have just been stumped with this one. I appreciate any help with this that I can find.

[/COLOR]Look in address bar if trying to download. Change "view_shared" to "shared" and you'll be able to download and try.

Won't install for me.

I'm running the Russian version. The settings mimic SPB Shell so I figured most of them out.

same here , won't install

Hi..

I am not sure whats happening. I will pull out the APK from ..\DATA\APP folder and post it as it is..

i also happened to give some tries before getting to work. But all credits to the guy who made the spbshell.txt in english.(I tried to decompile APK following Youtube videos to edit the scripts.xml and arrays.xml and using apkedit tools, but this APK won't recompile again , every time giving error about public.xml)) That guy has provided the modified scripts as well in his post. I installed the mod apk first and then on top of it, his apk in the forum.

Hi, I suggest you get the original apk. First see if that works. Then open with Winzip or winrar, replace the spbshell3d.txt in ..Assets\skins\skins\texts\ru folder with the one posted on page 2. Now copy this apk back to ur phone and see if it loads.

I'm running the Russian version off Yandex market. I have figured out the settings because it's close to SPB which I've been using since the Xperia X1 days. Just figured I'd give the English apk a shot. Not interested in tearing it down.

    Translation of the latest Yandex.Shell v2.14

    I updated English translation of the latest Yandex.Shell v2.14 downloaded from Yandex.Store follow lhurtado's instruction:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/8we07un2i4s2ujn/ru.yandex.shell.english.signed.v2.14.apk

    a.jpg


    Presenting Yandex Shell.
    This is Updated Version 2 .0 from the Russian Developers.
    Its free in Play Market, and is available only for Russia.
    Other Countries doesnt get to see it on Play Store due to limitations.

    Updated Version 2.0 released now has awesome Graphic Effects and Gestures.
    A new UI which is bound to make you fall in love.

    It has a Lot of new Widgets which are smart and witty.

    It has a New Dialer completely which works with Unrooted Phones too.
    The Dialer and Contacts are awesome.

    Unfortunately its in Russian , so I request some coder to Translate this Software into English.

    Themeing Part has been done by me, and its on hold, but if someone can Translate this , then it would be awesome for everyone here to use this
    Free software which is there in Play Market, but not to our Touch.

    Hope that someone does this and uploads it here.


    Download from Here : http://www.mediafire.com/?ffwwg7e8rpl46gw


    Play Store Free Link : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.yandex.shell

    Yandex Shell in English

    Hi, just translate Yandex shell apk. This is how to do it:
    • open the apk with winrar, 7zip, etc
    • go to \assets\skins\skins\texts\ru
    • open spbshell3d.txt
    • inside is the text you need to translate from russian to your language
    • modify this file with the traduction and save it. you must preserve the variable (%s, %u, %i, etc) format
    • delete META-INF folder inside the apk
    • sign apk again agian. i sign it with ZipSigner from market
    • install and enjoy

    I also made a xposed module to translate other strings from res/values/string.xml since I cant recompile the apk after decompile, but i dont think it is really needed, they are just few dialog string. Anyway it is attached.

    All the information that is obtained from yandex servers, like weather, and city names is still in russian.

    Regards

    Many thanks for your efforts.I downloaded the file and installed But the app shows version 2.14?

    Sorry, here is the correct version 2.15 http://d.pr/f/XPVE

    Please mirror too, thanks!

    Would anyone who has been able to get this translation to work mind doing us the honors of updating to v .15? Here are the links [all to the same file, just a few options for those who have download limitations based on where they live] to download the original .apk, since this is a free app, we'd greatly appreciate these links being allowed to stay:
